    • Social Media Digest India 2014 Social Networking Users Social Media user’s penetration in India is around 8.5% of the entire population. Top 8 metros including lead 53 cities represent more than 80% of social media users in India today. Rest of India mostly belonging to the rural strata inclusive of smaller townships and villages is mostly devoid of any social media usage as of now. Social Media adoption rates also depend upon device usage in India. India currently has high penetration rates for high end feature phones and Smartphone’s/tablets etc. and this is resulting in a positive impact on the growth of Social networking site users in India. Social Networking Popular Sites Social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube are the most commonly used social networking sites in India. Relationship, Conversations and Sharing are key contexts and sub texts around which the social media usage revolves. High End Usage like Social Shopping, E-Governance, Elections etc. are picking up however at a slow pace. www.eStatsIndia.com Page 2 Social Media Digest 2014
    • Social Media Users Demographics The Social Media Users demographics are skewed in the favor of “Young and Urban Youths”. India is a country of youth on an average (with around 65% of its populace in the age group of 16 to 44 years). These youngsters are active on Internet and one of their past times is connecting with friends through social networking sites. However, off late research indicates a “fatigue” or inertia towards such sites creeping in among these users. Social Media Urban vs. Rural Splits In the Urban populace Social media usage among end users is higher vs. corporate users. In fact the Urban Internet Users access social media through multiple devices. At home they access Internet and social media mostly through their own Laptops and Smartphone’s while at work they access either purely through their own Smartphone’s/tablets or a mix of Smartphone’s and office Laptops. Social Media Users in corporate houses are yet to scale up to the levels of end users. Rural Users access to social networking sites is low as of now. This is due to lack of core and access network coverage in these areas and low device penetration among these users where device affordability due to high price points is a major issue for them. This problem is further compounded due to a difference in demographics between urban and rural users. Accessing Social sites is still a primarily leisure and entertainment destination for many users. In rural areas other online modes like listening to music, playing games and watching video clips are much popular than other core Social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn etc. Social Media Users Gender Splits Among gender usage Male Users of Social networking sites are marginally higher than the Females. This is due to a marginally higher usage of net among Males vs. Females in India. However Female Users are fast picking up and their Social networking sites usage is not just limited to search, share and shopping only. They are increasing making use of these sites for linking professionally, online recruitment and linking with their peers. www.eStatsIndia.com Page 3 Social Media Digest 2014
